Fire prevention at technical installations

  • Lecture 1:      Fire protection for technical installations in new and existing buildings

      Speaker:         Achim Voigt, Wichmann Brandschutzsysteme GmbH

Fire protection measures are constantly required for technical installations in buildings. A challenge in terms of application and approvals.  The trades expect simple, approved, safe and sustainable solutions.

Wichmann is a manufacturer of cable sealing systems and so the basics of the sealing principle and important criteria from building law are discussed first. Based on this, possible solutions for fire protection during planning and execution will be shown. For example, when Wichmann cable boxes are used, there is no need to rework the cable insulation in case of reassignment. The boxes may be refilled. Practical knowledge and application examples will be discussed.


  • Lecture 2:      Fire protection - fire extinguishing systems beyond the known systems

    Speaker:       René Schwertfeger, T&B electronic GmbH

Repeated fires in industry lead to different preventive measures. These can be, for example, fully automatic fire extinguishing systems, but also systems that are specially designed for the events, such as spark extinguishing systems, water spray extinguishing systems, gas extinguishing systems or fire alarm systems.

The lecture will give an overview of different fire extinguishing systems. It will show application purposes and possibilities as well as first orientations for the required dimensioning and the system design.
